gotd304Rumors have been swirling in Hollywood that actress Keisha Castle-Hughes may join the Game of Thrones cast for season five.

Hughes, an Academy Award nominee, will likely play one of Oberyn Martell’s bastard daughters (known as the “Sand Snakes”) named Obara SandVanity Fair describes Obara, the eldest of her siblings, as “think Arya meets Brienne meets Oberyn Martell.” Many feel that this character will become a fan favorite.

Earlier this year, a leak revealed that Obara is the “most athletic Sand Snake will be having a major fight scene with a series regular character- not one who crosses her path in the books. This is an interesting change.” What do you think?
